extend tax credits for clean energy companies that are creating jobs, it would extend unemployment insurance to 2 million americans who are actively looking for jobs out there. i have to say that ever since i took office, throughout the campaign, and over the last couple of months, my preference would have been to solve all these problems in the context of a larger agreement, a bigger deal, a grand bargain or whatever you want to call it, that solves the deficit problems in a balanced and responsible way that does not just deal with taxes but also spending so that we can put all this behind us and focus on growing our economy. with this congress, that was obviously too much to hope for at this time. [laughter] maybe we can do it in stages. we will solve this problem instead in several steps. in 2011, we started reducing the deficit through $1 trillion in spending cuts which have taken place. the agreement being worked on right now would further reduce the deficit by asking the wealthiest 2% of americans to pay higher taxes for the first time in two decades so that would add additio

around energy. we are producing more energy and america can become an energy exporter. but the most immediate thing i've got to do, starting on january 1st, if congress doesn't act before the end of the year, is make sure that taxes are not going up on middle class families. >> joining me now, former spokesman for the democratic congressional campaign committee, doug thornel, republican media consultant kim, and my colleague at "the washington post" and white house reporter david knanakamura. doug, i want to start with you. the president's first-term agenda really was health care, and then he had to deal with the economy. >> right. >> so, health care, yes, but the rest was kind of set for him. how long does his second term really last before we bad political reporters start talking about 2016, and what are the one or two things you think are possible to get done or he should get done as a guy who's really looking to burnish his legacy as much as get re-elected? >> i think as much as up to midterm. >> it will last. >> yeah. i think immigration reform is huge. i think there's an openi
a big big portion of the problem. thank you. host: what energy end of the year energy issues are we looking at here and which ones are likely to get punted down the road? guest: that's a good question. i'm not sure what energy issues -- i'm not aware of any -- host: tax issues? guest: tax issues for the fiscal cliff. but going down the road you definitely have some issues. there's the need for a new highway bill, they've had trouble tasking the highway legislation because no one is willing to increase the gas tax. and our gas taxes are the main ways we pay for new roads and bridges and that kind of thing. so i think that's a relatively short-term problem. and then over the long term, which i've talked about here before, is that given that we're going to need some rev now help solve our future fiscal burden, one of the most sensible places to raise revenue would be through a carbon tax or something similar because that can also help us reorient our energy priorities to cleaner, less damaging greenhouse gases type of energy. host: i want to note that you can go to the c-span fiscal cl
? >> well, i guess the temptation is to say this is going to use up all the energy and fighting spirit of the white house but the president has four years, maybe two, maybe one before the mid terms, one after. i think that there's a legacy situation in play here and so i'm pretty sure that he is going to want to not leave huge debt and there is also a situation where what's good for him is also good in some respects for republicans. so do republicans want immigration reform before the next election? do they want to dig out of the hole they're in with hispanic voters? so there is some mutual interest. i think that gun fight is going to be very difficult but i think that's something that we're going to see, if it doesn't happen this year it may happen the next year or the year after. it is just something that i think the president will want to leave office having achieved. so nothing is going to be easy. we'll have very many brinks, you know, and a lot of fighting over principles which is not a bad thing but i think ultimately a lot of these issues will be addressed. >> david, sequestrat

talked last night about energy reform, he talked about gun control, he's talked about immigration. a lot of his political capital is going to be used in the next 60 to 90 days on these budget wars. >> that's right. and these budget wars don't knowsly amount to legacy. here's a president who came in like most presidents thinking about a legacy, thinking about history. of course i think obama care will be part it haof it but i t he's looking at immigration and energy, a lot of thing he's wasn't able to do in the first term, to get them done in the second term. a lot of bad blood there between obama and the republicans but also some bad blood there between obama and the democrats. not a lot of -- i think not a lot of improvement obama has shown over he's last weeks in terms of his relationship with congress. i think that's something he certainly needs to work on if he's looking at legacy, if he's looking at these big ticket items to push them through in his second term. in a couple of months we'll have these big debates around the debt limit but quickly once 2014 comes around, we're going t

and investments and clean energy jobs they create. two million americans out of work and out there looking pounding pavement every day goring to continue to receive unemployment benefits as lng as they're actively looking for a job. but... i think we all recognize this law is just one step in a blauder effort to strengthen our economy and broaden opportunity for everybody. the fact is that the deficit is still too high. and we're still investing too little in the things we need for the economy to grow as fast as it should. that is why speaker boehner and i tried to negotiate larger agreement that's would put this country on a path to paying down debt, while also putting americans back to work rebuilding roads and bridges and providing investments in areas like education and job training. unfortunately, there just wasn't enough support or time for that kind of large agreement in lame duck session of congress. that failure come was a cost. as the needs for the process over several weeks made business more uncertain. and consumers less confident. but, we're continuing to chip away at this pro

income tax credit with a college tuition tax credit or the alternative energy tax credits are things that i value and democrats value. the one piece of this puzzle that is rumored to be permanent is a patch to the so-called alternative minimum tax or amt. that would protect the middle class folks making $40,000, $50,000 range from being hit by that tax, which is really not often discussed in what i'm seeing in terms of media coverage. it is a very complex menu of things, chris, that we are debating and discussing here in the senate and the house. it is my hope that we can follow senator harken's core value which is to make sure that revenue raised is being invested in a way that protects the middle class and strengthens our economy. >> senator, let me ask you. i want to go a little bit broader. you were an executive prior to coming in the senate. you elected to the senate in 2010. you haven't been there all that long. certainly compared to everyone else there. are you surprised, amazed? what is your read-out that we are where we are on this? i'm looking at the clock. 10:47:50. the fa
of what feels like here, bill. a lot of energy at the white house, a lot of curiosity surrounding this meeting. what you can't see from here and what i can't show you, unfortunately, is just about 50 yards from here is where you saw speaker boehner walking into the building, and we've got a whole cadre of white house still press photographers up on ladders peering over the hedge trying to get a picture of the leaders as they walk in and just to the left of that crowd is another crowd of reporters all gathered around the stakeout cameras. that's where the leaders could come out and talk to microphones if they wanted to say anything after this meeting. there's a lot of anticipation of whether they will say anything after this meeting, and it's widely seen that this would be a good sign for negotiations if they do come out and talk. a lot of previous white house meetings, they have not come out to say anything afterwards, so all those folks waiting over there might be waiting in vain here at this point, but at this point we know most of the major leaders are in the building, and we'l

, the president also mapped out an ambitious second-term agenda, including immigration reform, energy policy and stiffer gun control laws but all that's on hold while the fight over taxes and spending rages on. kate? >> kristen welker at the white house tonight. >>> so, what does an impasse mean? for more, wasn't to bring in cnbc's washington bureau chief, john harwood. let's break it down here. if we have no deal tomorrow, by midnight tomorrow, what happens? what is the direct impact on the american taxpayer? >> the biggest impact, kate, would be on the 2 million americans who would lose extended unemployment benefits of around $300 a month. the average family through the loss of the payroll tax cut would lose about $20 a week out of their paycheck and as for the tax withholding, the higher tax rates for people through the income tax code, treasury could put off delaying -- taking more money out of people's paycheck bus they are not inclined to do so unless a deal is imminent on capitol hill. >> the markets were unsettled last week with all the indecision in washington. what are we looking
. natural gas, energy exploration in this country is turning into a big tailwind. how much do you dismiss those, if at all? >> i think they're all great stories. second half 2013 could be excellent and growth could really accelerate. all the things you mentioned are important. i would also allow the fact that household debt to income is going to fall back by the end, we think of next year, back to the long-term equilibrium level. the health sector is healthy. raised a lot of capital. europe has stabilized. but the problem is the politics. it's hard to quantify the politics. and we've seen business confidence also move lower. so it's really all about washington. if we get some clarity on the fiscal side, i think growth next year could be much better than what we're looking at at the moment. >> that is a big if. joe, have a great new year's. see you in 2013. >> same to you, carl. >> the markets are set to open lower. the nasdaq closing in negative territory for the last five sessions. the major indices are still on track to end with gains. having the best year in 2010. the s&p 500 up more t
much less energy and vigor some of the no voters have, they -- they would like to at least be able to go home for a day before the new congress starts on january 3rd. >> they want to tell constituents, i wasn't all that into this but that had nothing to do with me. here is the problem, as we get further and further. this could have amendments and setbacks, does that give energy to interest groups who started last night? politicking and lobbying both senators and congressmen to say this is a bad deal that gives too much to the other side. >> sure this gives an opportunity for opponents to make arguments this is a bad deal. this legislation not available to anybody publicly when the senate voted it on last night. there were early returns from heritage action group telling folks to vote no on it if they could, but basically this is the opportunity the no crowd will have over the next 12 hours, 24 hours to make their arguments. this is the way congress does business in the dark of night without any transparency to what they are doing, and i think ultimately, that's one of the reasons t
credit that's helped millions of families pay for college. it would extend tax credits for clean energy companies creating jobs and reducing our dependence and foreign oil. it would extend unemployment insurance to 2 million americans out there actively looking for a job. i have to say that ever since i took office, throughout the campaign and the last couple months, my preference would have been to solve all these problems in the context of a larger agreement, a bigger deal, a grand bargain, whatever you want to call it, that solves our deficit problems in a balanced and responsible way. it doesn't just you deal with the taxes. but a balanced way so we can put this behind us and focus on growing our economy. but with this congress that was obviously a little too much to hope for at this time. [laughter] >> maybe we can do it in stages. we'll solve this problem instead in several steps. last year in 2011 we started reducing the defend city through $1 trillion in spending cuts. those have already taken place. the agreement being worked on right now would further reduce the deficit by ask

much do you think the tea party has to do with it? >> well, the ptea party provide much of the energy and uncompromising demands. but ultimately, the republican party leadership in the house embraced them and acted on their what have from the very beginning of this congress, demanding immediate spending cuts at a time when the economy was still pretty shaky, and taking the unprecedented action of holding the necessary rise and the debt ceiling hostage to their own policy demands, leading to a downgrade in our dollars and the decline in the economy. so, yeah, the tea party bears responsibility. but the tea party and the republican party, sadly, have become one in the same. >> well, take us sort of micro now, that's the macro picture. take us micro into these next 29 1/2 hours and how this might play into whether or not we go off the fiscal cliff. >> yeah, listen, as you know, you've been talking to many other people up there, there's an easy way of agreeing to a small package that deals with tax cuts extending the tax cuts for most families, and an extension of expiring unemployment be

for businesses through an extension of important tax provisions such as the r&d credit and also renewable energy incentives that must continue in this great country of ours and encourage business investments. but i want to emphasize this somewhat in contrast to what our chairman has said. this legislation breaks the iron barrier that for far too long has prevented additional tax revenues from the very wealthiest. it raises $620 billion in revenue by achieving the president's goal of asking the wealthiest 2% of americans to pay more while protecting 98% of families -- that's right, that's what it does, 97% -- i want to emphasize this contrary to propoganda coming from the other side. 97% of small businesses from any tax increase. and this needs to be emphasized especially in view, mr. chairman, of your comments. this package is vital for future deficit reduction efforts. setting the stage for a balanced approach from here on out by delaying sequestration through one-to-one revenue to spending cuts. yesterday, president obama said he is committed to deficit reduction, but he emphasized several tim

of some of the tax credits for education, for clean energy that he got in the stimulus package, his administration, when he said that we are going to seek more revenue, when the big discussion of spending cuts ripens in the next couple of months before the debt ceiling that was an important signal to democrats that you may not like what i got in this deal. you may think we're not getting enough tax revenue from affluent americans, but i'm going to go after more when we talk about cutting spending on issues of the major entitlement programs, including medicare and social security. he was trying to buck up democrats who are not happy with this deal. and i think vice president biden is doing that right at this moment with senate democrats. >> well, the vice president is certainly getting the lion's share, you know, of credit maybe. but certainly attention surrounding this issue. take us through the relationship between him and minority leader mitch mcconnell who personally requested his participation in these negotiations. >> there are big political differences between the two, but the

, tax credits for investment, bonus depreciation provision and renewable energy. so there are things in there that i think the vice president will use to try to convince democrats that it's a good deal for everybody including them. >> can i respond to that? >> absolutely. >> david brings up a very good point. this is a very big bill. i obviously just looked at the top line stuff. what leader mcconnell and vice president biden did was borderline brilliant where there is a little bit in here for everybody, both conservatives but also progressives where they can go back to the constituency specifically the house and say i voted for this and here is why. there is farm stuff in there, really some good stuff folks can give them comfort and say this is a good thing for our constituency. >> and, you know, we've heard a lot of people this morning refer to vice president biden as the closer. he certainly comes out looking very good in this. assuming that this does pass, robert, does anyone other than the vice president come out looking like a winner? conversely, who ends up losing? a lot of pe
essentially got everything he wanted on tax policy, not just on rates but the credits for energy and education, the amt fix, the doc fix, and the republicans got very little if anything they wanted on the spending. a lot of democrats are miffed the president didn't take off the debt ceiling renegotiation in six weeks but i think the republicans are going to have a very, very hard part on what will be chapter two of this negotiation because they trial ran the medicare voucher proposal they had, and that went over very, very poorly during the election and they don't like defense cuts that are in the sequestration right now, so it's hard for me to know where the republicans really go in stage two of this on the spedding cuts. so i think the president has done very well for himself. >> dr. peterson, what's your sense of the president's speech today? it almost sounded like the president was daring house republicans to cross him. >> i think the president's tone today does reflect what julian said, which is that 11% approval rating, the idea it looks like the house will be holding the ball at the end
